...Welcome to the June PJ Party

Welcome to our PJ party folks - I'm so glad you could make it!
We have 4 challenges for you tonight - The links are now open - you have 24 hours to link up!
 Here's a run down of what's happening:

PJ Party Schedule
•The PJ party post and all challenge links are now live.
• Links will close at 11:45pm tomorrow, the 15th
•The PJ party winner will be announced just after 11.45pm tomorrow on the 15th of the month (all times are UK time).

Rules - a little housekeeping!
• You don't have to use Waltzingmouse Stamps to play along, but it will tickle us pink if you do!
• You can enter each challenge as many times as you like, using separate cards and separate links, but you cannot enter any one card in more than one challenge!
• Links should take folks directly to the blog post/spot where we can see/comment 
on your challenge entry.
• Please mention our PJ party and challenge on your blog or gallery post (- you are welcome to grab the PJ logo or sketch graphic and add those to your blog if you like)
 • You do not need to enter every challenge, but the more entries you have the better change of winning the prize!

We will have one overall winner chosen at random from all challenge entries. The prize winner will receive £30GBP store credit for Waltzingmouse Stamps.

Now please note - this is important - if the winning entry uses Waltzingmouse brand stamps or dies the prize will be doubled and the winner will get £60GBP (approx $98USD)!

Please note that projects using only free WMS products will not be eligible for the double prize - though you could still qualify for the £30GBP!
OK - Here we go:
Challenge 1 - Can it/Pickle it

from Claire
using We Go Together, Candy Jar and Jar fillers jam packed.

from Jeanne

from Anya - Anya discovered that the inner circle from the Pretty Circles Die Set makes a perfect jar label. Put it on the lid, no adhesive, and screwed it right on under the band, easy peasy! Good find Anya
 from Julia

Make a project involving canning jars/jam jars - there are a number of WMS sets that involve jars - and don't forget you don't have to use WMS jars! Any sort of Jar - Kilner, Jam jar, sweetie Jar...see what you have. If you don't have any jar stamps, why not dress up, alter and re-purpose a real jar.

Challenge 2 - mmm....Coffee colour challenge
from Julia

Let's use this coffee palette from Design Seeds as our inspiration. Take coffee shades as your base and add a pop of Cranberry? Pomegranate? I'm ok with whatever your favourite red is.

Challenge 4 - Bedtime Story sketch 
Jeanne subbed in some fireworks for banners! I love how this worked!

 from Tosha

 from Julia

Here it is - Make a banner of some sort -you can pop it on a card, or hang it across your mantlepiece! Any size you fancy! Go ahead and create now so that your project will be ready to link up on the night of the party!  We don't mind if you play around a bit with this - so long as the spirit of the sketch shows through!
